SCALES DIMENSIONS OF LARGE OBJECTS MUST BE REDUCED TO ACCOMMODATE ON STANDARD SIZE DRAWING SHEET. THIS REDUCTION CREATES A SCALE OF THAT REDUCTION RATIO, WHICH IS GENERALLY A FRACTION.. SUCH A SCALE IS CALLED REDUCING SCALE AND THAT RATIO IS CALLED REPRESENTATIVE FACTOR. FOR FULL SIZE SCALE R.F.=1 OR ( 1:1 ) MEANS DRAWING & OBJECT ARE OF SAME SIZE. Other RFs are described as 1:10, :100, 1:1000, 1:1,00,000 SIMILARLY IN CASE OF TINY OBJECTS DIMENSIONS MUST BE INCREASED FOR ABOVE PURPOSE. HENCE THIS SCALE IS CALLED ENLARGING SCALE. HERE THE RATIO CALLED REPRESENTATIVE FACTOR IS MORE THAN UNITY. USE FOLLOWING FORMULAS FOR THE CALCULATIONS IN THIS TOPIC. DIMENSION OF DRAWING A REPRESENTATIVE FACTOR (R.F.) = DIMENSION OF OBJECT LENGTH OF DRAWING = ACTUAL LENGTH V AREA OF DRAWING = ACTUAL AREA V VOLUME AS PER DRWG. = 3 ACTUAL VOLUME B LENGTH OF SCALE = R.F MAX.

**The solved examples ON NEXT PAGES will **

We have seen that the plain scales give only two dimensions, such as a unit and it’s subunit or it’s fraction. DIAGONAL SCALE The diagonal scales give us three successive dimensions that is a unit, a subunit and a subdivision of a subunit. The principle of construction of a diagonal scale is as follows. Let the XY in figure be a subunit. From Y draw a perpendicular YZ to a suitable height. Join XZ. Divide YZ in to 10 equal parts. Draw parallel lines to XY from all these divisions and number them as shown. From geometry we know that similar triangles have their like sides proportional. Consider two similar triangles XYZ and 7’ 7Z, we have 7Z / YZ = 7’7 / XY (each part being one unit) Means 7’ 7 = 7 / 10. x X Y = 0.7 XY :. Similarly 1’ – 1 = 0.1 XY 2’ – 2 = 0.2 XY Thus, it is very clear that, the sides of small triangles, which are parallel to divided lines, become progressively shorter in length by 0.1 XY.

**Vernier Scales: Figure to the right shows a part of a plain scale in**

These scales, like diagonal scales , are used to read to a very small unit with great accuracy. It consists of two parts – a primary scale and a vernier. The primary scale is a plain scale fully divided into minor divisions. As it would be difficult to sub-divide the minor divisions in ordinary way, it is done with the help of the vernier. The graduations on vernier are derived from those on the primary scale. Figure to the right shows a part of a plain scale in which length A-O represents 10 cm. If we divide A-O into ten equal parts, each will be of 1 cm. Now it would not be easy to divide each of these parts into ten equal divisions to get measurements in millimeters. Now if we take a length BO equal to = 11 such equal parts, thus representing 11 cm, and divide it into ten equal divisions, each of these divisions will represent 11 / 10 – 1.1 cm. The difference between one part of AO and one division of BO will be equal 1.1 – 1.0 = 0.1 cm or 1 mm. This difference is called Least Count of the scale. Minimum this distance can be measured by this scale. The upper scale BO is the vernier.The combination of plain scale and the vernier is vernier scale. 9.9 7.7 5.5 3.3 1.1 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 A B engineering108.com

**PROBLEM 12: Construct 250 and 1150 angles with a horizontal line , by using scale of cords.**

CONSTRUCTION: First prepare Scale of Cords for the problem. Then Draw a horizontal line. Mark point O on it. To construct 250 angle at O. Take O-A distance in compass from cords scale and mark it on on the line drawn, from O Name O & A as shown. Then O as center, O-A radius draw an arc upward.. Take cord length of 250 angle from scale of cords in compass and from A cut the arc at point B.Join B with O. The angle AOB is thus 250 To construct 1150 angle at O. This scale can measure or construct angles upto 900 only directly. Hence Subtract from 1800.We get 750 angle , which can be constructed with this scale. Extend previous arc of OA radius and taking cord length of 750 in compass cut this arc at B1 with A as center. Join B1 with O. Now angle AOB1 is 750 and angle COB1 is 1150. 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 900 00 10 20 40 30 70 50 60 90 80 O A B B1 SCALE OF CORDS 250 10 20 40 30 70 50 60 90 80 1150 A O 750 10 20 40 30 70 50 60 90 80 O C A To construct 250 angle at O.
